full name / name of organization:

Seeking 15- or 20-minute papers on the subject of The Classical Influence in the eighteenth century. This topic might include studies on translations, historiography, antiquarian societies, or original art, music, or literature based on ancient sources or models. SCSECS subscribes to the idea of the "long" eighteenth century, approximately 1680 to 1830, so subjects need not be restricted to a strict 1700-1799 time frame. The conference is interdisciplinary; all subjects are welcome as long as they fit the general topic.

The SCSECS conference this year will be held in the gorgeous King and Prince hotel resort on Saint Simon's Island, Georgia, February 17-19.

Send an abstract of the proposed paper to or to Susan Spencer, Professor of English, University of Central Oklahoma, Edmond OK 73034.

Deadline for the submission of abstracts is January 12, 2011. Please include any information about a.v. needs, etc., along with your initial proposal.
